Fringe is fun, a beaded fringe even more so. Beaded fringe can be added to a bag or purse, a garment like a vest, along the bottom of textile art, or as embellishment on a decorative wall quilt. Beaded fringe will benefit a variety of textile art. In this class, you will go out on the fringe to try out a variety of fringe beading styles, and make a sampler of fringes to enjoy as a piece of art alone or use as a reference of techniques to apply beaded fringe to other projects. You will also learn tips on how to make your fringe durable.
